SEGA has taken on the role of being the publisher for the upcoming game from Two Point Studios.
If you’re unfamiliar with the name of that company, that’s because it’s brand new. Formed in the wake of the closing of Microsoft’s Lionhead Studios two years ago, Two Point Studios is being led by Mark Webley and Gary Carr. Both devs worked on a variety of games when they were apart of retro-studio Bullfrog Productions and then Lionhead.
Now, the team is working on an unannounced simulator PC title which is set to come out in 2018. Seeing that SEGA is publishing it, makes you wonder exactly what it’s all about…
SEGA Europe’s Senior VP of Commercial Publishing, John Clark, had this to say about the deal:
“We’ve been talking to Two Point Studios for a long time and are really impressed with their vision. We’re delighted to announce our partnership and look forward to revealing more about the project early next year.”
John Carr also commented on the deal with SEGA:
“We are really excited to be working with SEGA and between us we feel confident that we can create something special, and realise our vision of crafting a beautiful, charming and challenging sim game.”
Two Point Studios’ website also has this message:
Finally, the word is out!
We are so very pleased to be partnering with Sega on our first game as Two Point Studios. The team we have here is made up of some of the best “devs” from Bullfrog, Muckyfoot and Lionhead. We are busy building something that reflects the heyday of those great companies. Can’t wait to tell you more about it but best we keep things on the low down for now and concentrate on making a great game.
We will be looking to bring some fresh faces into the studio in the coming months… hopefully that will bring our average age down a bit 🙂 If you are a talented games maker, who wants to work on a quality PC game… keep checking in on our sites.
Let the fun begin!
